With all of this technology in tow, the logistics and transportation elements of the tour also had to be thoroughly planned, right down to the flight cases.
“We had worked on a previous Adele production, building a custom piano shell to house two keyboards so when Richard Young approached us towards the end of 2015 to ask if we were up for the challenge of supplying the current tour’s flight casing requirements, we of course said yes!” explained Matt Snowball Music’s Matt Young of the MSM Cases division.
With the the challenge underway, the bespoke flight case team, completed by Paul Maliszewski, Robert Stepien, Lucas Wach and Dominic Carlyle-Parker began working closely with the production team in order to deliver all of the required containers. Continued Matt Young: “All of our cases are built to the same high standard to withstand the rigors of touring.
We prepare our own laminated ply for the case construction so we can ensure the quality from start to finish.” In total, the Matt Snowball team built 44 new cases and refurbished a further 11 in just three weeks.

"Flightcases and the rigours of the road were eased with
bespoke products from Matt Snowball Music Cases, which looked
after backline and various other areas.
Matt Young of the MSM Cases Team said: “We have
worked with Kasabian and the crew for several years now,
building cases which are worthy of a tough life on the road.
Whether its for a single showor a full tour we’re able to work
with the crew to deliver a case that works
We’re on-hand for any modifications or repairs that are needed
before any show but it’s great to see that after so
many years on tour, someof the first cases we ever built for
Kasabian are still going strong and able to
support and protect their equipment - all over the world.”
The MSM cases
team was completed by Pawel Maliszewski, Robert Stepien,
and Dom Parker."
